RV042 ripoff!

    We have a bunch of RV082's installed. We have a couple of new sites that will only have a couple of PC's, so I thought ok...perhaps they don't need a big box like the RV082...the RV042 would do. Went ahead and purchased it. It came with 1.3.1 firmware. As I started to configure the box, I noticed some differences. Here are the ones that caught my attention:

    1) No https remote management capability
    2) No built-in PPTP server
    3) No support for Linksys WebVPN client

    WTF?!

    Is there a new firmware that has these features? I looked at Linksys's site, and the only official firmware release download I can find is 1.3.1.

    Hmmm... I have an RV042 and it works mint.
    I have the 1.3.3 beta firmware that fixed the VPN problems,
    Has the https capabilitys,
    and the PPTP server, you have to enter the URL manually (case sensitive) h**p://192.168.1.1/pptp.htm

    Here's the thread with the 1.3.3 firmware, look at the third post from the top.

    The 1.3.6 firmware is out from the chinese site but I'll stick with this for now seeing as though I had about 60 days uptime last time I reset it... (only cause I changed my cable modem!)

    Anyways hope this helps! ;)
